Butter Flight Birthday ......

A butterfly Birthday card from me today ......

Made on a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card blank with a diecut matt as the base.  The butterflies (Darkroom Door) were stamped in Archival black ink onto thin white card.  These were punched out and layered over some more punched out butterflies in pink gingham design paper.

The base matt was coloured with Distress ink splashes at various densities.  The butterflies were coloured with pens and some pink glitter glue added before placing on the matt as shown.  The sentiment (Happy Little Stampers) was stamped in Archival black on white card trimmed out and matted on some pink card before applying on foam pads.  Three black adhesive gems were added to finish.

Clean and Simple style .....

Tagging in the Garden ....

Made a tag for a monthly Swap over on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group .....

I made a background on white card with Distress Oxides and cut a larger pink matt from card.

The urn, leaves and hydrangeas were stamped on white card with a set of layering stamps (Kitchen Sink a US company) and Memento inks.  These were trimmed out and mounted on foam pads onto the matt as shown.  I used a piece of ribbon as the stem for the topiary design.

I stamped the words in Versafine black (Woodware) and doodled with white and black pens as shown.

The eyelet was applied with the Cropadile and some ribbons threaded through to finish.

Fly by .... butterfly

Made this Birthday card with a butterfly & who doesn't like a butterfly?

Used a 5 x 7 inch white card base and then diecut some watercolour paper.  I stamped the butterfly (Darkroom Door) in Archival black ink and used Distress ink colours and a waterbrush to colour the image. I thoroughly dried the paper matt and then (using a stamp positioner) overstamped with more Archival black ink and heat embossed with detail clear embossing powder.  The background was coloured with distress ink and some ink was removed by adding water and blotting off with a piece of kitchen roll.  This was then matted onto black card.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine black ink on white card, trimmed and again matted onto black card.

Both image and sentiment where then applied to the card front on foam pads. three gems were added to finish the card.

Golden Times ....

Here is a gold & white Birthday card I made ....

I started with a white card blank and made a matt with Gold crackle medium through a butterfly stencil.  When dry I used this as a base and matted on gold mirri card.  I then diecut a butterfly in more gold mirri card and applied this to the matt as shown.  Two black gems were added to decorate the butterfly body.

The sentiment (Happy Little Stampers) was stamped on white card with Vesafine black ink, matted on more gold mirri card and attached on foam pads.  The matt was then stuck in place on the front of the card to finish.

Summer Holiday ......

This is how Summer should really be .......

Made this card made for the Less Is More Challenge Blog whose theme is 'Your Perfect Holiday'

I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch white card base and die-cut a slightly smaller matt with a stitched edge die.  I then stamped the main image (Inkadinkado) with Archival black ink.  This was then sponged with Distress inks in yellows, blues and oranges after making a mask for the surfer and board. Some of the wave tips were highlighted with a white pigment pen. It was then matted on blue card.

The sentiment 'Holiday Hello - from me to you' (Stampin'Up) was stamped in Versafine black ink onto white card which was then die-cut with a circular die.  This was lightly sponged with the same Distress ink colours.  A black cabochon was placed in the centre.

The card was then assembled with foam pads under the white matt and the circular sentiment.

Happy Summer .......
